The Little-Known Cave In Texas You Can Only Reach By Hiking This .6-Mile Trail
If you’re in search of a new cave hike in Texas to embark on, look no further than Hueco Tanks State Park. This rocky oasis in the West Texas desert is home to a little-known cave filled with ancient petroglyphs. It’s a portal back in time just waiting for you to explore!
Please note: Access to the park is restricted. You can explore it via guided or self-guided tour; however, both require a reservation.
